Comment(by kalxas):

 Short description of how this is done for future reference (works on

 1. Install Ruby Gems:

     # sudo apt-get install ruby ruby-dev

 2. Install FPM

     # gem install fpm

 3. Install QGIS from OSGeoLive ppa

 4. Move default plugins out of the default path:

     # mkdir -p /usr/share/qgis/python/default_plugins

     # mv /usr/share/qgis/python/plugins/*

 5. Open QGIS and install wanted plugins

 6. Move the new plugins to the default folder

     # mv ~/.qgis2/python/plugins/* /usr/share/qgis/python/plugins/

     # chown -R root:root /usr/share/qgis/python/plugins

 7. Create DEB using FPM:
     # cd ~

     # sudo su

     # fpm -s dir -t deb -a all -n qgis-osgeolive-plugins -v 8.0
 --iteration 1 \
       -d qgis -m "<gcpp.kalxas at gmail.com>" /usr/share/qgis/python/plugins

 The deb is then available in ~/

 8. Upload to download.osgeo.org and update the qgis installation script.
